Spacing changed on newer focal reducers??
Posted 10 May 2014 - 02:18 AM
I am new to this forum
I have an LX90 scope and wanted to get a focal reducer, but have been told that the newer ones have a shorter spacing needed from lens to sensor.
The older ones I was told needed around 105mm spacing, and the newer ones only around 50mm, is this correct??
If so how do,I know that I am buying one of the newer ones??
As it is the shorter spacing that would really suite my set up
Many thanks for your replies in advance

Welcome to the forum!
I am not sure what you are referring to with new versus old focal reducers. The only new ones that I know about are the proposed f/5.0 that is supposed to come out for the new LX 600 and 850 types that have shorter focal ratios than the more traditional f/10. When those come out, they will not fit on an LX 90 scope. The only focal reducers that I know about for an LX 90 are the f/6.3 (#07545) and the f/3.3 (#?). If there have been any changes to these in the last few years, it has gone unannounced as far as I know.
Anyone else know anything about this that I don't?
